The Comeback: Dodge Charger 2017
Do you happen to know of an even more famous muscle car besides the Dodge Charger? The Dodge Charger was able to achieve the name as one of the coolest cars ever driven by speed racers and celebrities everywhere, and is even used in hall of fame movies such as Death Proof, The Fast & The Furious, Bullitt, and The Dukes of Hazard.
It is unavoidable that people wander their minds on the 1969 model once they hear about the Charger. But will the well-known muscle car still have the same qualities and features from its first appearance about half a century ago? Dodge is actually planning to reinvent the Charger to its 2017 model with the right ratio of classical and modern taste. The question now is, will it be good enough?
How it Works
Execution is probably the most important part of a muscle car especially something as famous as the Charger. Good news is that the 2017 model is based on this. There is a wide variety of engines to choose from the new Charger, but performance wise you must check out the Hellcat. It is able to accelerate the car from 0-60mph in just 4.1 seconds due to its supercharged 6.2 liter V8. The mere excitement felt when on the wheel of the Hellcat is enough reason for it to be tried. Explore on Dodge dealers around the city so you will be able to do a test drive and fully understand the feels of it. Yet, the other models should not also be underestimated!
Capacity and luxury
Would prefer a sedan with the right capacity and luxury for your family? Sadly, you are in for some disappointment. The 2017 Challenger is nothing compared to other sedans. But this does not really mean that you will feel too uncomfortable when inside the car. The seats are large enough that you will be comfortable with your shoulders and legs especially in front. Although the low ceiling will a disadvantage to tall drivers. Additionally, it cannot be considered an ideal family car. So in buying a Charger, be sure that it will not be made as a family car.
Some of the standard safety features found on the Charger are front seat side-impact airbags, antillck disc brakes, side curtain airbags, and stability and traction control. You will also be able to choose to activate automatic breaking, rear collision sensors, and blind spot warning system. These features might seem as though not a necessity, but best believe that it is there for a reason especially because of safety.
As a summary, the Dodge Charger has a little bit of everything needed in a muscle car. It was never an ideal car for family trips and school purposes.
